Ambassadors

IN LSAMP supports an Ambassador program. The program is comprised of URM students who have incredible passion to promote and represent IUSB by sharing their personal college experiences with local high schools that have high numbers of URM groups. The Ambassadors act as a link to the local high schools and serve as advocates for higher education. They serve as role models for students and provide students with information regarding IUSB STEM programs and the support system that are part of IUSB tradition.
